Spring is officially here, and there’s no better time to plan a getaway to Greater Palm Springs. This Southern California oasis offers a blissful, sun-kissed escape, and you’ll find plenty of opportunities to get outside, enjoy the fresh air, and soak up some rays with your furry friend in tow.
 
Fetch and frolic at one of several sprawling dog parks, where mountains and palm trees provide a breathtaking backdrop for off-leash fun.

Or pick a pet-friendly hike, like Mission Creek Preserve, to experience the destination’s scenic, natural beauty – and be sure to give Fido some time to stop and smell the roses (or rather, desert lavender)! Beautiful wildflowers typically bloom in the spring, surrounding the trails with a kaleidoscope of color.
